MACROSS Shooting Insight


After coming to, Maximilian Jenius, captain of the Macross 7 fleet, tried to wrap his head around what had happened.

Something massive had struck his ship, the Battle 7. Upon regaining consciousness, he discovered that the rest of the flagship’s fleet had vanished. Adrift nearby instead, was an older class vessel with weaponry of decades past, seemingly belonging to the New U.N. Military era. Also spotted were vessels outfitted with state-of-the-art technology that he’d never seen before.

“If I’m not mistaken, it would appear that we’ve somehow been transported into the future.”

It was an astonishing conclusion, one that the Captain had come to only after assessing all the information at his disposal. Further investigation, however, would soon uncover something even more incredible.

  • Sara Nome: Mayan priestess and Guide of the Wind.
  • Myung Fang Lone: Producer of Sharon Apple, the galaxy’s most popular virtual idol.
  • Mylene Flare Jenius: Member of the rock band Fire Bomber. Sheryl Nome: The Galactic Fairy.
  • Ranka Lee: Super Dimensional Cinderella.
  • Freyja Wion and Mikumo Guynemer: Members of the Tactical Sound Unit Walküre.

All have deep connections to “Songs.” All are known as being “songstresses.’ And all have gone missing.

Their whereabouts and safety are unknown and there are few clues as to where to start searching.

With the situation becoming more dire by the minute, Shin Kudo, Isamu Dyson, Gamlin Kizaki, Alto Saotome, and Hayate Immelmann, all ace pilots from their respective time periods, team up to find them.

The mission to rescue the songstresses from all across the galaxy is about to begin!

The Macross shoot ’em up game is now coming to PS5 alongside the previously announced Windows PC, Switch, and PlayStation 4 versions.
